strain2xspectime.pl creates input file correctly for time series data and this is fit using the mbht model. However, residuals show high frequency correlations presumably because noise is being
applied in frequency space in synthlisa. The strain2xspec.pl and mbh model which work in frequency space are not working correctly - the model doesn't match the data when it should. All current changes are checked into the repository.
I'm not clear how and why the postBuffer is used - need to check this with Sean or Ira.
Larger question is how should the noise be generated ? Is it correct to do this in the frequency domain ? A better detector model may be required.

Some recent patches from the bugs page :

Allyn Tennant spotted a bug in genrsp when making a response for a grating. I'd missed a case when the channel boundaries are in decreasing energy order and the result was the center bin of the gaussian response was chopped out. This is fixed in v2.03.

Kim Page at Leicester reported that the HEAsoft 6.5 version of extractor dies when using a time filter if the filename contains a "+". It was interpreting this as an HDU number. Fixed this and checked in a change which will be included in extractor v5.0.

At the request mainly of the ISIS folks I've managed to make a stripped-down HEAsoft 6.5 distribution which only includes the Xspec model library files to build only libXSFunctions, libXSUtil and libXS. I assume that the user has a cfitsio library already. Some minor hacks of the top level and Xspec configure files were necessary to make sure that hmake didn't try to build any heacore libraries. Also, moved some include files into Xspec/src/include from directories that otherwise aren't needed.
